Some of the characters include:
The Holy Priest. This person revels in technology for its own sake and has no patience for the hapless techno weenies who don't spend their days chanting arcane invocations using terms like "regex," "SOAP," "asynchronous messaging," "n-tier architecture," and "CORBA." Holy Priests recognize opinions as valid only if they come from fellow clerics, and they express contempt for "lusers" at every opportunity. They may be brilliant coders, but keep them locked in the closet, far away from customers.
What other types of programmers have you all encountered in the workplace?
Here is one I've encountered:
The Rod Stewart- With this guy, your project is staying Forever Young. He preaches delusions of grandeur; and when all is said and done, the project hasn't budged hardly an inch. Sometimes, if you're lucky, the project may grow younger. It's a shame we don't all grow younger too.
